For back compat games they update an emulator, seeing as the X1X will run the emulator in an apparent upgraded fashion (going by reports), older games may need a small patch to run.

In other news, they are working on Fable Anniversary for BC. :wub:

A question to you fine folks, my father in law has gotten his grandkids an Xbox one Minecraft bundle for Xmas, he's an organised man apparently. Now I've agreed to get it all ready, patch it, download the game etc, my question is can I do this without signing in or creating an account? I know you need an account to tie the game to but can I download it then let them 'claim' it when the first fire it up?

My instinct tells me ill have to create an account for them and use that to patch the console and download the game but some kind of anonymous download and patch option would be cool.

So my missus has busted my turtle beach headset :x I need a new one, any recommendations? Could do with it working on a PS4 as well? Nothing over £100 ta.

Fabian Delph is a banana split.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

A touch lacking in genre variety, but some great titles there.

I recommend not reading too much into these kinds of leaks, they pop up this time every month and are almost always fake.

I thought the Shadow or Mordor sequel was already out but apparently that's October 10th, so it's highly unlikely they would give out practically the same (better from what I've heard) game for free within the same week almost. So it's likely fake, sorry for posting :fp:

They've got a big marketing deal in place for the sequel so including the first game in this month's games would make sense.

I think it's happened a few times (Tomb Raider, Forza 5) but they've always been made available a few months beforehand. I would have thought it would cannibalise sales if you do it at the same time because you're your own competition

I almost want to buy a bone now, literally jsut to replay the Halo games. I could get a replacement 360, but i want the 1080p version of Halo 3 for the 10 year anniversary (thats today btw folks) and id like all the Campaigns in one game with the MCC, but im not willing to pay more than 100 quid or so seeing as the XBX will likely gut the cost of the OG bone pretty soon. Been scouring ebay and gooseberry fool for a while now but nothing so far.

The S was on sale a couple of weeks ago. MCC is only €14 on CD KEYS. Go look for a trade in. Halo 3 is the only game in MCC that runs locked 60FPS and as such is easily the best game of the collection.

Trade in prices are gooseberry fool tho, like a 500gb bone is €210 in CEX or 200 in Gamestop. Thats way more than im willing to pay just for one game. A few on adverts.ie going for 150 or so, but even thats a bit too tasty for my liking. 120 tops is about all id do. Just gonna keep an eye out for one on ebay/adverts etc

ODST is an extra fiver DLC and its locked 60fps (same engine).

Hope you get one so we can play online, BTB switches between all 4 halo's and you vote in between matches all on dedicated servers.

Yeah id love a game of Halo 3 online again. Closest i can get to it is playing the PC Halo Online mod. Its pretty much Halo 3 MP, but its only got a few maps and the population is pretty small

I own the LoTR game but even so that’s a good lineup.

Maybe pre-owned prices will come down a bit when people start trading in for the XB1X in November.

This is the death of intelligence
